CCR Talks: J.J. Winckelmann - January 20, 2019

Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717 - 1768) is being celebrated this year as the pioneer who first articulated the differences between Greek and Roman art and spearheaded many of the ideas at the root of modern archaeology. Many consider him to be the father of art history. Join us for a morning coffee/cake slide lecture as we learn about his life, his achievements, and his legacy. The lecture will also touch on the current “dispersed” exhibition on Winckelmann at the Vatican Museums (closing on March 9th).

When: Sunday, January 20, 2019
Time: 10 a.m.
Where: In the Quartiere Trieste area of Rome; exact location will be sent to confirmed participants by email.
